April 2019 – Our Activities and Highlights of the Month
The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and the sun is starting to peek through the clouds. It’s finally time to get out of your winter hibernation because SPRING is here! Warmer weather means lots of fun activities are coming up here at VGC. Here are my favorites for the month of April:
Kick a soccer ball, bounce a basketball, throw a Frisbee, or cheer from the sidelines. Sports Day is all about fun in the sun… with just a little bit of friendly competition! Join us at beautiful David Lam Park to start your weekend off right.
Sakura Days Festival
In Vancouver, the true first sign of spring is when cherry blossoms start popping up on trees all over the city. The best place to celebrate the beauty of sakura is at the Sakura Days Festival in VanDusen Gardens. Experience traditional Japanese music, eat delicious food and explore the huge gardens filled with new blooms.

We are pretty lucky to have British Columbia’s only major league soccer team right here in Vancouver! The season just started and it’s the perfect time to catch a game. Come watch the Whitecaps play (and hopefully beat!) the Los Angeles Football Club in an exciting game at BC Place.
